🔭 This Friday, September 29th, will mark the 23rd European Researchers’ Night in Burgas. The event will take place under the motto “Skills and the Science of the Future – the Challenge of Generations.”
✨ The organizer of the event in Burgas is once again the “Prof. Dr. Asen Zlatarov” University as part of the consortium of educational and research organizations in the project K-TRIO (Knowledge gained in Training, Research, and Innovation brings more Opportunities), coordinated by Sofia University. The project is funded by the Horizon Europe Program, with its main goal being to raise public awareness of the importance of scientific research and the work of scientists.

✅ The project “Researchers in the Triangle of Knowledge” (K-TRIO) aims primarily to bring scientists and their work closer to the general public, thus increasing people’s awareness of scientific activities and achievements and their effects on everyday life. This, in turn, should attract and motivate more young talents to strive for a scientific career.
✅ In the long run, the project aims to encourage young people’s interest in the so-called STEM & Art (or the addition of art to STEM education) to nurture a new culture of creativity, scientific curiosity, innovative spirit, and responsibility for environmental conservation. It also seeks to increase public readiness to engage in citizen science, open science, and open innovation.
✅ This approach would improve the opportunities for researchers to interact with children and students and engage in citizen science activities with them. It would enhance the reputation and popularity of research teams and organizations and their contribution to economic and regional development. Thus, the public would become much more aware of what is happening with education, scientific research, and innovation as fundamental drivers of knowledge, with a huge impact on citizens’ daily lives and work, and on sustainable futures. It would also increase public understanding of the policies and programs of the European Union, with a special focus on the future of the European research area, sustainable recovery, green and digital transformation.
